Alan Black, Principal Emeritus w/ the Charlotte Symphony will be joining on cello

Established in the Shenandoah Valley, Palmyra’s set explores the fusion of traditional folk string instruments, three part harmonies and innovative songwriting. The trio captures the collective spirit of three Virginia natives, Teddy (he/him), Manoa (he/him), and Sasha (they/them), often described as a distant cousin of the progressive folk band, Punch Brothers, mixed with elements of Oliver Wood or the Avett Brothers. Palmyra’s songs are intimate and contemplative, with arrangements that allow them to create the illusion of a full, larger-than-three ensemble. The trio’s sound is a nod to Appalachia and Americana, apparent through their stirring craftsmanship and dedication to a folk-driven, innovative experience throughout each unique live performance.

Palmyra has supported Watchhouse, Illiterate Light and Mipso on the road and had the honor to play the historic Newport Folk Festival and Floydfest where they were named the “On The Rise” competition winner in ’22. They will be playing Red Wing Roots, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Americanafest and returning to Newport in the summer of 2023. Palmyra is working on their first full length LP. Catch them live on the east coast!
